The truly inspirational story of the quest of Longford's Margaret Norton to find her birth parents moved viewers of the Late Late Show to tears last night. 

Margaret was illegally adopted from a GP in Monaghan in the 1970s, and with few clues to her origins, she shared her extraordinary story with Ryan Tubridy.

Margaret’s husband came up with the idea of doing a DNA ancestry kit test – and the results saw Margaret reunited with her parents and finding herself with a new brother and sister.
